A resource for understanding old age, written from the perspective of an older adult (he’s 87). Older readers have reviewed it and said, “Finally, someone understands me.” Caregivers have been grateful for the first-person perspective of aging, as opposed to the wealth of material written by middle-aged researchers.

Not explicitly religious, but valuable for those planning programming for older adults in the church. An excerpt might also be assigned as part of a caregiver’s class or other training for church members working with elders.
